Omar-S has announced a new album, ‘YOU WANT’, which is set to drop on 7th February with a release party at Marble Bar, in the FXHE Records boss' hometown of Detroit.
Carried by his own aforementioned label, the record comprises 13 tracks, and features appearances from a host of heads based in Michigan's Motor City, such as Ian Finkelstein, John FM, and L'Renee, the latter having previously appeared on Omar-S' 'S.E.X.'

Carl Cox will embark on his Carl Cox: Invites tour later this year.
The tour, which will stop in 12 cities in 30 days, will include three festival stops, with Coxy performing at EDC Mexico, San Diego's CRSSD, and Ultra Miami, where the much-loved DJ also hosts his recently adapted Resistance stage for a techno takeover.
Resistance has revealed the first acts who'll perform at the arena during Ultra Miami next year, following months of uncertainty earlier this year regarding the festival's location.
